Facebook, Orkut to be Banned in Goa?

Chief Minister Digambar Kamat’s letter to the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team from the Department of Information Technology asking it to take action with regards to misuse of social networking sites like Facebook, Orkut has caused a stir.

It may be recalled that two ministers – Babush Monserrate and Churchill Alemao – had complained that they were impersonated on these social networking sites, with some unknown person opening accounts on their behalf and maligning them with the posts therein.

Following these complaints, Digambar Kamat wrote to the authorities to look into the matter and block these sites if necessary as they were “causing a lot of harassment to many people”.

However, this move has triggered off a heated debate on the sites with the Chief Minister coming under substantial flak for it.
